  • Thats what happened to me once. When I ran down the road barefoot on cement. It might be because your gaining weight and its putting pressure on that. Try not to be on your feet that much.

  • It could be a stone bruise from something you stepped on wrong. It is also possible that you might have a bone spur on your heel which is very common. a bone spur is a small growth of bone on the bone it then presses on the ligament and the ligament can become tight and the spot on your heel becomes inflamed ( the red) and hurts. It can be caused by so many things. The best way to diagnose the spur is by x-ray. There are many ways to treat them also. If it continues to bother you after ice or rest go see your DR.
